Texas Rangers Company A Badge
Texas Rangers Company A Badge – Peso Badge
The Texas Rangers were often called cruel – but they were formed in cruel times and they had to police a cruel frontier. Often incredibly outnumbered – companies of Rangers were victorious against Comanche warriors, Mexican Armies, rustlers, horse thieves, and assorted other bandits — including Bonnie and Clyde.
Legendary Ranger Exploits
Captain Jack Hays and his company took on most of the Mexican Army to break the trap holding General Winfield Scott’s Army in Central Mexico. The year was 1847 and Scott had sent word to President Polk that it would take 50,000 troops to break the army free. But all he needed and all he got was Captain Hays and about 40 Rangers.
This early 20th century Ranger badge was actually pressed out of a silver Peso from Mexico. Badge is stamped on both sides – notice the Peso imprint on the back.
Our Old West replica badges are crafted out of steel and brass. We double-stamp them and then they are silver plated. Finally each Old West badge is hand finished for that worn, antique look. Heavy safety pin closure on the back of each badge.
Badges arrive in a small gift box complete with story. Depending on the badge, size range is 1 5/8″ inches to 3 1/8″ H.
